For extra flavor, the oil from the jar of sun-dried tomatoes is used to cook the shrimp. I learned that trick from this recipe for Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce.

 

There’s 1/3 cup of white wine in this recipe but you could sub vegetable broth or even chicken broth.

Shimp by themselves taste divine, but even better when swimming in garlic and Parmesan cream sauce! You will love these Creamy Tuscan Shrimp!

    1. Yes, you can make it ahead and reheat. If it has thickened too much, you can add a little more cream or milk to thin the sauce. Also be careful not to reheat for too long or the shrimp will overcook.
